In the distance Leah heard sirens. She ignored them. Right now, her daughter needed her, and Emily was just out of reach, curled up under the bed, her eyes closed, desperately shaking. Leah did the only thing any mother would do. She crawled through the blood to get to her daughter.
Dr. Leah Wright returned to her childhood home in rural Pennsylvania with her husband to find peace and quiet, start afresh, and raise her six-year-old daughter Emily. But when she gets home one dark winter night, clutching roses in her hand, she finds her daughter huddled under her bed and her husband’s blood all over the floor....
When Detective Luka Jericho is called to investigate, he’s shocked to learn that the killer left a witness behind - the victim’s young daughter. The scene is a painful reminder of his fiancé’s unsolved death, and he is desperate to find out what Emily saw that night. He knows that the killer could still be out there, waiting to strike again.
But growing up, Leah learned the hard way that the only person she could rely on was herself. And it’s not until she and Emily are attacked again that she realizes just how close the killer is. Can she trust Luka to keep her daughter safe?
Fans of Karin Slaughter, Kendra Elliot, and Tess Gerritsen will devour this fast-paced and chilling new crime series from New York Times best-selling author CJ Lyons. You won’t be able to stop listening to this audiobook.

Good story but hampered by a terrible narrator
The story was good although I figured out whodunit about half-way in.
The narrator, Barbara Barnes is God awful!! Too many mispronunciations for my liking.
January Lavoy would have been a much better choice.

the story was pretty good but
the narrator was below par. I'll probably get the next of it has a different narrator.

The narration is just ruining the story for me.
I am more than half way thru this audiobook & am having a difficult time getting into or following the story because the narrator’s voice is so robotic and weird. Sentences are much too focused on pronunciation & it all just comes across as a staccato Siri voice. Especially when doing the voice of the 6 year old-sounded like it was coming from a creepy clown.
I’m going to have to finish this by turning off the audio & reading it before I pull my own ears off. I know many times one person reading all voices can sometimes have a few off voices but I’ve never had this experience before with an audiobook.

just started but the narrator is absolutely terrible. hope I can make 13 hours, as I can hardly make 4 minutes of this narrator. I'll update.
